Filming with the Queen was lovely, says Craig

Actor Daniel Craig says working with Britain’s Queen Elizabeth was lovely.

The 44-year-old, who worked alongside the monarch for a sketch shot for the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics, is pleased how good the stunt looked and admits it was surreal working with her.

‘I think she did good, I think she did fantastically. I am a big fan of Danny Boyle. He did an amazing job with the Opening Ceremony. I was proud to be a small part of it,’ the quoted Craig as saying.

‘It was quite surreal to be in the palace with the queen but Danny was being lovely, and so was she,’ he added.   


Daniel Craig thrilled James Bond fans in London on Tuesday when he stepped onto the red carpet with co-stars Judi Dench and Javier Bardem for the world premiere of the 23rd Bond film Skyfall.

Craig, making his third outing as Bond, said it had been a real honour to play the role in the franchise’s 50th anniversary year, as he swept past a giant 007 logo and the secret agent’s favourite Aston Martin.

The rugged Craig stars with Dench, again playing his controller M, and Spaniard Bardem as the spy’s latest nemesis Raoul Silva.

Heir to the British throne Prince Charles attended the screening, which fittingly took place amid the regal splendour of the Royal Albert Hall.

Critics have declared the 23rd Bond film one of the finest in the British secret agent’s half century on the silver screen.
